Trailer Park: “The Wedding Song,” “Gentlemen Broncos,” “Saw VI,” And “House Of The Devil”

I know you’re swamped with Halloween preparations and haven’t even bothered to look at this week’s movies, but what are you gonna do on Sunday afternoon when you wake up hung over with a man dressed like the pope next to you and you’re wearing someone else’s wig? You’ve gotta escape somewhere, and where better than a dark, climate-controlled room full of strangers with a tub of hangover-curing carbohydrates? Here’s a look at the possibilities. Keep reading »

New Heath Ledger-Directed Music Video For N’Fa’s “Cause An Effect”

Before passing away in 2008, Heath Ledger had started a career as a music video director. One of his videos premiered in August. And a second one, a rap video for Australian N’Fa’s “Cause An Effect,” debuted today on YouTube. The video was shot on one camera in Heath’s Sydney garage shortly before his death, and it’s believed this was the last project over which he exercised complete creative control. He was childhood friends with N’Fa, aka No Fixed Abode, previously known as NFamas from the Australian hip-hop band 1200 Techniques. “The idea was to keep it very artistic so that is what we did,” N’fa said in an accompanying video. “Heath directed it really well and I was really happy with the outcome … I know Heath was happy with the work,” he added.

A Hair Raising Informercial


Too lazy to brush your own hair? No worries, help — or the worst twirled knot of your life — is on the way, for $34.95 plus shipping and handling. I don’t know what’s scarier, this rotating hair brush or the fact that the crazy abusive SlapChop guy’s commercials are still airing? [Everything Is Terrible] Keep reading »

The Genius Life Advice I Take From Kenny Rogers’ “The Gambler”

The other day I was attempting to organize my closet, but I wasn’t really getting anywhere: I have way too much stuff and I don’t like to get rid of anything, because I know the moment I do, it will come back in style. I’ve held on to almost everything, even a pair of high-waisted leather pants I bought in 1998. As I sat on my bedroom floor, surrounded by clothes that no longer fit or are past their prime, I thought: “What am I going to do?” Then, it hit me: “You gotta know when to hold ‘em, know when to fold ‘em, know when to walk away, know when to run.” Yeah, I’m quoting Kenny Rogers’ “The Gambler.” I decided that the garments that didn’t fit or hadn’t been worn in more than a year didn’t deserve a place in my closet. And those that I still wear regularly or hold some sort of sentimental value were folded and hung. Problem solved.

I don’t listen to country music. I can’t pretend I know what’s going on in the genre nowadays, and I’m still not convinced that Taylor Swift actually sings country. Yet, one of my favorite songs is “The Gambler” because it gives good life advice, even if you’re not a poker player. Keep reading »

Britney’s New Video For “3″ Is Hot


Just as suspected. Britney Spears just released the video for her new song “3,” which you’ve probably been hearing everywhere since it’s sitting at the top of the Billboard music chart. And from that little snippet where she’s being pulled back and forth by two dudes in body paint, I think it’s safe to say that the song is definitely about threesomes rather than, say, math. Sure seems like Hollywood’s gone threesome-crazy, no? Keep reading »

Rampaging Ewoks Cause Drunken Melee On “The Today Show”


Today, all the morning shows did their homages to Halloween, including “The Today Show,” where Al Roker and company got all “Star Wars” and mistakenly invited some unruly ewoks to the party. Are the ewoks drunk, sober? Children, midgets? Kidding, out of control? Whatever the heck went down, it made for some amusing TV. [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »

G.I. Joe And Barbie Rock Out And Get It On


The best part of playing with Barbie dolls was, let’s face it, making them hump. Back then I didn’t know what missionary, doggy-style, or reverse cowgirl were, but my Barbie and Ken dolls sure did. That’s kind of what’s going on in this music video, from some band called Sextapes, only Ken has been traded in for a far more manly dude — G.I. Joe. [videos.antville.org] Keep reading »

Smile! Creepy Hat Forces You To Grin At All Times


Just what we all need—a hat that makes us smile. Constantly. It’s called “The Happiness Hat” (obviously) and you either smile in it or suffer the consequences—literally, from a jolt of pain it inflicts upon you. For some reason I don’t think Bright-Sided author Barbara Ehrenreich would be feeling this contraption—because as she sees it, we are a nation of anti-depressant-popping, cheerfulness-obsessed, unrealistic folks who prize a happy outlook above all else. But back to the hat: It literally jabs you in the back of the head with a metal spike when you frown! Check out this ridiculous video of it exacting revenge on some non-smiler. Spooky.

Kelly Kapoor And Erin Hannon Are Gonna Give Rihanna, Beyonce, And Lady Gaga A Run For Their Money

There’s a hot new girl group out of Scranton, PA, that’s inspired by “Rihanna, Katy Perry, J.Hud, and all the Kardashians,” and they might surpass all these influences if the rest of their music is anything like this first single. “The Office” characters Kelly Kapoor (Mindy Kaling) and Erin Hannon (Ellie Kemper) are Subtle Sexuality, and the video for their debut song, “Male Prima Donna,” is out — and it’s awesome. Listen only if you want lines like “If you ever leave me again/I’ll down a bottle of baby aspirin” and “You’re cute but you think you’re blazin’ hot/You’re short but you think you’re not” stuck in your head for the rest of the day. The only thing hotter than this song is Kelly and Erin dancing around Dunder Mifflin’s warehouse in pirate outfits. [Subtle Sexuality] Keep reading »

The Wonderful World Of Musical Hand-Me-Downs


Out there pop singer Har Mar Superstar—who bears a striking resemblance to Ron Jeremy—wrote a song for Britney Spears called “Tall Boy.” The tune was about having sex with tall men and drinking cans of beer, so it’s not a big surprise that BritBrit passed on it. But Har Mar Superstar thinks this was, like, the best rejection ever. He put “Tall Boy” on his upcoming album, Dark Touches, and said, “It’s my favorite song I’ve written.” Actually, I could totally see Britney busting out this techno-esque tune while wearing some racy outfit. She’d probably just add a few electronically enhanced groans. [Spinner]

Lots of musicians perform hand-me-down songs. Here’s a collection of songs that were originally meant for another artist. Keep reading »
